Depends: Hi! Is this your first pregnancy? If you have had a miscarriage in the past then you may be at risk... However if this is your first pregnancy and your OB/GYN says you are doing well, then you will most likely do well :) Unfortunately a miscarriage can happen at any point in pregnancy. I do believe that exercising will help with your overall well-being. So does yoga and meditation. ...Read more

Am 17wks pregnant, hearing my babys heartbeat almost everyday, my last us was 6 weeks ago.Is hearing heartbeats consider a gd sign that baby is doing ok?

Congrats..: I assume when you say that hearing the baby's heartbeat every means you have a doppler-like device which can magnify the sound? Otherwise, even with a stethoscope you are not likely to hear the heartbeat at this stage. If u lucky to have such a device, hearing the regular heartbeat is a good sign! make sure u keep yourself healthy, follow-up regularly. Again, congrats and good luck. ...Read more
